    Schitt’s Creek stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara as Johnny and Moira Rose, a wealthy couple who are forced, after losing all their money, to rebuild their lives in their only remaining asset: the small town of Schitt’s Creek, which they once purchased as a joke.

     

    It has a metacritic score of 62 and premiered on Pop last night.

    ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Premiere Review: A Rich Family Loses Everything

    Schitt’s Creek

     

    A new sitcom featuring a pair of very welcome familiar faces, Schitt’s Creek is the flagship series for the Pop channel (formerly the TV Guide Network). It stars Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy, the SCTV veterans and frequent co-stars in such Christopher Guest movies as Best in Show and A Mighty Wind.

    Here, Levy and O’Hara play Johnny and Moira Rose, a wealthy married couple who lose their wealth in the first episode, save for one asset: Their accountant tells them they own a small town called Schitt’s Creek. The Roses are forced by their newly impoverished circumstances to relocate to this dismal little burg, whose mayor is played by Chris Elliott in fine, fatuous form. The series was co-created by Levy and his son, Daniel Levy. Daniel also writes episodes of Creek and co-stars as Rose son David. The family unit is completed by Annie Murphy as Alexis Rose; she and David are spoiled brats who are as appalled as their parents to have sunk to living in this backwater.

    I can’t say that there are many funny jokes in Schitt’s Creek, but the show is never less than watchable, thanks in particular to Levy Sr. (playing, more or less, the show’s straight-man) and O’Hara (superb as a former soap-star villain and a real-life diva). The pair knows how to hold your interest and feel their pain on the strength of their reactions and sharp line-readings. The same goes for Elliott, who has perfected clueless smugness. Creek also benefits from the presence of Emily Hampshire as the nicely deadpan, sarcastic motel clerk Stevie.

    I’m not sure Schitt’s Creek is the show that will make Pop pop in the consciousness of many channel-surfing viewers, but the show exerts its own original kind of charm: an air of anxious amusement.

    I love this show so far. I adore Catherine O’Hara and I think they are all great on this show (Levy, Levy, and Murphy)

    I’ve seen the ads all over NYC – and all I have to say is… What. A. Name.
